The Epson Cx4800 is a versatile printer with all-in-one capabilities. It's a printer, scanner and copier with clear image resolution and full colour printing. However, when you refill the ink cartridge, the chip on the cartridge still reads "empty." This means the refill cartridge will not work. Reused ink cartridges save a lot of money, so if you want to use refills in the Epson Cx4800 there is a solution. Either buy new cartridges, or refill your old ones and then reset the chip on the cartridge so it reads "full.'
